ARHA 203, ARCP 214|
This course introduces the art and archaeology of Greek civilization from the end of the Bronze Age through the early Hellenistic period. Throughout the semester we'll survey the major archaeological sites (civic and cultic) for each period, examine archaeological questions, and study the development of sculpture, painting, ceramics, and architectural trends in light of political and social changes. In addition, we'll explore some of the tools archaeologists use to reconstruct ancient societies and the techniques that art historians apply to the study of art.
